Description

This is really early for nest box activity at my house. When I saw this little Nuthatch at one of my Bluebird boxes, I didn’t realize that a House Sparrow had gotten into it already this year and built a nest! The Nuthatch was clearing out that huge pile of mixed materials that the House Sparrow is famous for. She really has a big job ahead!
